Personally- I like that ship.

Reminds me of a Time-warp speciality I remember seeing somewhere on the web.

Good Luck!

Hi Blappy! I also like the design. It fits well with the TOS idea of having to put engines and other equipment far away from the crew.

Hello Everybody!

It's been a while since I did anything in here so I thought I would post a pic of where the model is currently.

It looks started but it's not really. I originally did the castings for it and did some work on making it more kit like when I originally got the parts. In order to start selling it I had to come up with something to show how it goes together. I quickly threw together some parts, primed them white and threw then together with a set of castings. That is the eyesore you see here. I will have to disassemble most of this to build it right.

You can see I am going to use the Pilot Bussard Collectors with the spikes. I'll just paint those up nice since they are now primed white.

So there it is!

Uh oh! Two weeks until deadline and I have not had time to hardly touch mine. I did a bit of gluing on the nacelles and REMOVED the lower pylon thingy. So its actually in more pieces than it was before.

I need to get cracking!

I'm out. Real life model work has intervened and I will not have a speck of free time until some time in late October.
